About Change for Good

Change for Good inflight fundraising programme has been operated by Cathay Pacific Airways and Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) since 1991. Travelers on Cathay Pacific flights are encouraged to donate any spare change they have – in any currency – to UNICEF HK when returning from their journeys. As of 2017, the programme has raised more than HK$187 million to support UNICEF’s life-saving programmes, helping deprived women and children across 190 countries and territories worldwide.

Field trips

Every year, UNICEF HK organizes field trips for Cathay Pacific staff volunteers to visit UNICEF’s project work in different regions that benefit from Change for Good. The teams are able to witness first-hand how passengers’ donations are effectively transformed into life-changing aids, giving every child a fair chance to live a healthy life and develop his or her potential.

13 Cathay Pacific staff went to Tongren city of Guizhou Province with UNICEF HK in June 2018 to witness how the donations collected through Change for Good programme helped fund the “Schools For Asia” Programme for Early Childhood Development. The programme helped give children a quality learning environment through improving school facilities and training teachers at the kindergartens.

Not many girls in Nepal have access to education due to poverty. 11 Cathay Pacific staff took part in a UNICEF HK field trip in September 2018 and flew to Parsa, Nepal. There, they learnt about the current situation of young girls and how UNICEF empowers these girls by providing them with a second chance of education.
